    Rashaad Newsome - Shade Compositions 2012

    Newsome’s Shade Compositions takes up the body language and voice of certain women of color — wondering how a seemingly sassy street expression extends across the globe as an open vernacular. Unlike previous iterations, the SFMOMA performance includes local women artists and also drag performers; this presentation of the piece meditates on the changing footprint of the African American community in the Bay Area and on the way queer culture has drawn sustenance and inspiration from the iconic “black diva.” ”Mighty real,” indeed.

    ROUTINE
    Julien Douvier

    One day, I realized that I was making the same trip every day for almost four years. Waking up at the same time, taking the same routes through the same streets, walking on the same sidewalks in front of the same buildings…This is why I wanted to find a visual way to represent this phenomeon called routine.

    This is a work about repetition and rhythm, present in many forms, not only with people walking by but also with the building’s facades.
